Sample the many delights of Bosnian Food during your holiday with us.

Bosnian cuisine uses many spices, but usually in moderate quantities.

Most dishes are light, as they are cooked in lots of water; the sauces are fully natural, consisting of little more than the natural juices of the vegetables in the dish.

Typical ingredients include tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, dried and fresh beans, plums, milk, paprika and cream called pavlaka.

Typical meat dishes include primarily beef and lamb. In most cases only the Christian population eats pork.

Some local specialties are cevapcici, burek, dolma, sarma, pilaf, goulash, ajvar and a whole range of Eastern sweets.

The best local wines come from Herzegovina where the climate is suitable for growing grapes.

Plum or apple rakija is produced in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It really is where East meets West in the kitchen.
